Myers, Englewood, Port Charlotte, Sarasota, Bradenton, North Venice, FL, and the surrounding areas with our air duct cleaning services.
The Dirty Secret Your Ductwork Is Hiding
While HVAC ducts are designed to distribute conditioned air throughout your home, that's rarely all they're transporting. As air flows through your system, it often takes dust and other particulates along for the ride. Over time, these particles accumulate inside your ductwork and around your HVAC components. Leaky ducts are especially problematic, pulling in even more dust from the spaces around them.
In fact, the air ducts in a typical home can collect up to 40 pounds of dust per year. That's about as much weight as a five-gallon bucket of water! Even worse, this dust can easily become airborne again, spreading throughout your home as well as your HVAC system.
The Benefits of Professional Air Duct Cleaning
Naturally, such a large reservoir of dust is bad news for your indoor air quality. By adding more particulates to the air, dirty ducts can indirectly worsen allergies, irritate airways, and trigger other adverse health effects. Dusty ductwork can also foul up air filters and other HVAC components, hampering performance and causing increased wear. To solve these problems, the qualified professionals at Conditioned Air employ powerful tools and techniques to deliver proven duct cleaning results. After our experts are done, we're confident you'll enjoy:
- Better overall health and wellness
- A cleaner, fresher-smelling home
- Less dust in the air and on surfaces
- Reduced HVAC wear and tear

- More uniform heating and cooling
